How To Cancel Opera News Feed On Your Phone

Opera Mini and Opera Browser users are familiar with the news feed that comes built into the two browsers. If you use either of them, it is a great way to stay up-to-date with news and information from around you and from the world at large. Each time you open the browser, Opera News feed displays top stories and trending content for your consumption.

While it is a useful feature, it may not be how you like to use your browser. You may want to disable it. Opera News feed also often comes with pop-up notifications that grate and irritate. In many cases, they feel quite spammy. Thankfully, if you want to disable or cancel Opera News feed, there are ways to go about it.
